Now that winter is upon us, you may be using your furnace regularly again. After a long summer of inactivity, there’s a chance that your furnace may not be working as well as it once did. The last thing that you want is for your furnace to break down in the middle of winter, leaving you in the cold. Regular maintenance is the best way to ensure that your furnace works efficiently all winter long. Here are a few furnace maintenance tips from the plumbing and home heating and cooling experts at ClearView Plumbing.
Check and Replace Your Air Filter
Your furnace doesn’t just regular the temperature in your home—it also acts as an air filtration system, cleaning the air as it passes through your furnace. If the air filters inside your furnace aren’t regularly cleaned and replaced, your furnace may become less capable of cleaning your air. This could cause dust, dirt and other pollutants to be recirculated around your home. Not only this, a buildup of dirt in your furnace may also affect its performance, making it more difficult for your furnace to warm the air in your home. Have your air filters regular inspected and replaced to keep your furnace working to the best of its ability.
Having the fans of your unit inspected regularly is the best way to ensure that your furnace stays working all winter longs. The fans are the part of your unit that circulates the newly warmed air around your home. If these fans start to malfunction or slow down, air may not be properly circulated around your home. In addition to this, when fans gets dusty, they may circulate dirt and debris around your home. Having the fans inspected requires technical expertise and can be dangerous to attempt on your own. This is why a professional inspection is recommended. The professional and experienced technicians at ClearView Plumbing can quickly and efficiently inspect your furnace fans to make sure that your unit is properly functioning without causing a large disruption to your daily life.
